Not a 'sidcot' that is a private purchase American suit that wealthier officers could purchase, typically used by instructors stateside and especially on air mail routes post war.
good primer here: Sidcot-Suit-History
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
Many thanks aster - I thought this type of suit was in fact a different variation of the original Sidcot.
I had seen the link you included (but obviously didn't read it terribly successfully), but I just can't find a lot about these on this interweb thingy and may have to (gasp/shock) invest in a few more books!
The advice provided here is one of the reasons I am indebted to this Forum.
Again - my thanks!
[Update - sold for over US$800]
